Clinical psychologist Bart Rossi said, 'Masculinity Defines Men, Rather Than the Reverse' - Why the 'Masculinity' Debate Is So Important. Diane Abbott MP spoke earlier this month of a ‘crisis of masculinity’, prompting a sudden flurry of media interviews with men from across the board claiming the opposite.

Gay men mobilizing for civil rights, personal safety, and cultural space have acted on the basis of a long experience of oppression by heterosexual men. The term homophobia was coined around 1970 to describe this experience. A central insight of gay liberation is the depth and pervasiveness of homophobia, closely connected with dominant forms of masculinity.
